Manchester United has officially confirmed the transfer of 19 year old keeper Kieran O’hara. The lad has joined Morecambe on loan until the end of this season. The young keeper joined Morecambe on loan in September earlier and then continued his development during the month-long switch to Stockport in November. Having already spent a temporary spell with the League Two outfit last September, O’Hara will now look forward to gain first-team experience during their time away from United.

O’Hara is a tall youngster heighted 6 feet 11 inches. Kieran is a hardworking goalkeeper and is described as the one with safe hands. The 19 year old is known for dealing in set pieces. Morecambe agreed for the deal with the English giants yesterday. 

Along with Kieran O’Hara, Dean Henderson aged 18, too headed out of Old Trafford. Henderson initially goes to Stockport for one month, with an option to extend the deal further. Both goalkeepers will be hoping to gain first-team experience with their new respective clubs.

O’Hara joined the Red Devils back in 2012. He was offered a professional contract two years later, in 2014, when he finally penned down the deal. Kieran is a promising youngster and still needs experience despite his impressive skills.

The lad didn’t feature in the Premier League until now and with De Gea and Romero being up for the first and second choices, it looked nearly impossible for Kieran to grab a spot in the team. Hence he has been loaned out of Old Trafford to benefit his career.
